The Rollercoaster

I had waited ages for this moment to arrive, but  now it was here, I wanted to wish it away again.
This could all end in disaster. I really could only hope for the best and trust every machine and person did their job correctly.
I screamed and crossed my fingers tight. Closing my eyes, I wished over and over again that the ride would soon end. Whose dumb idea was this?

Looking at the majestic view, the crowd gathers under the proud flagpole. The kapa haka performance begins to celebrate our nation.
